New Mexico: Pearce, Teague Rematch a Neck-and-Neck Race

Former Rep. Steve Pearce is giving successor Harry Teague a close contest, according to a new survey by Public Policy Polling.

The survey shows the two candidates so close that the results are within the margin of error.

Pearce, a Republican who represented the 2nd district for three terms, was polling at 43 percent of the vote to 41 percent for Democrat Teague, while 16 percent were undecided.

Forty-three percent of voters polled said they have a favorable view of Pearce, and 31 percent had an unfavorable view. Teague’s job-approval rating was 41 percent, with 36 percent disapproval.

The survey of 400 registered voters was conducted Feb. 18-20 and has a margin of error of 4.9 points.
